The iconic Rubik’s Cube was born more than 40 years ago and has conquered the world since then, having inspired world-famous brands, high-tech architects, Hollywood film producers, and master confectioners all around the world. In this article, we collected the most spectacular manifestations of Ernő Rubik’s Magic Cube, thanks to which we can get to know a new apect of the Hungarian invention. Check them out below!
The exciting colour scheme of the Rubik’s Cube first inspired a French master confectioner, Cedric Grolet, who combined sweetness and creativity in his Rubik’s Cube-shaped cake that was made of 27 individual pastries. As MyModernMet reports, the culinary creation includes such avant-garde flavour pairings as apricot, cherry, rosemary, and tarragon. The elegant design of the special cake can be attributed to the sophisticated colour combination, including whimsical and neutral colours with golden decorations. The dessert was presented at Le Dali restaurant, part of the prestigious Le Meurice hotel in Paris.
As Femcafe reports, you can also prepare your own Rubik’s Cube cake at home. The dessert is made in about two and a half hours, but it is well worth the effort. In order to realise an impressive design, you will need food colouring and a “pound cake” or sponge cake base. Slice the pound cake (or sponge cake), spread vanilla cream on it, grate lemon zest on it, cover it with jam, and make small cubes out of it. Then make the marshmallow fondant, knead small dumplings from it, add food colouring to it, and coat the small cubes with the coloured fondant, then place the cubes on a slice of chocolate and assemble the Rubik’s Cube. You can make it in a smaller or larger size – the result will definitely be fun, imaginative, and divinely delicious.

When visiting the beautiful capital of Costa del Sol, you should not miss the impressive art gallery Centre Pompidou Málaga, offering a journey through the art of the 20th and 21st centuries. As Malagaturismo reports, the experience at the Centre Pompidou Málaga is lived through multidisciplinary programs, including dance, cinema, workshops, and other artistic activities to generate a strong sense of creative community. Another interesting feature is that
the impressive Malaga collection is housed in a large glass cube at Muelle Uno whose design is very similar to a giant Rubik’s Cube.
Not only as dessert but also in the form of soup, we can taste the flavours of the Rubik’s Cube. As Startlap reports, Toyo Suisan Kaisha presented an instant Japanese noodle soup themed Rubik’s Cube for those who would like to try something different. The unique instant soup is available in green and red colours, packaged in a box of instant noodles, containing a silver bag of spices. This time, the task of the consumers is much simpler, as only one side of the cube needs to be put together. Toyo Suisan Kaisha’s new Rubik’s Cubes are available on Amazon Japan for 2,880 JPY (about $26).
The Hungarian invention has inspired several Hollywood producers as well, who depicted the Magic Cube in special stories. According to Port.hu, the iconic logic game turned up in such celebrated Hollywood films as Dude Where’s My Car, The Engineer, Armageddon, The Pursuit of Happiness, or Snowden, spinning in the hands of such world-famous actors as Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, or Seann William Scott.
The Rubik’s Cube has conquered the world of fashion as well.
Independent artists around the world have been creating Rubik’s Cube T-shirts for years, with unique designs and inspiring messages like: “Life is like a Rubik’s Cube. It does not matter how messed up it is, there is always a solution.” The iconic cube also inspired the world-famous sportswear Puma, which, in collaboration with Rubik’s Brand, created the world’s first Rubik-themed footwear in 2019.
